First 5 App: Prone to Wander Study // My Moment: Read Lamentations 3:40, Samuel 7:3-4 and Joel 2:12-13. What are you learning about returning to the Lord?
Returning to the Lord – the thought alone is loaded!
I came from Him but I moved away. He did not move. My actions and attitudes have moved me far away from Him.
For me, returning to the Lord is about looking at sin differently than I have before, and not making it about the specific action or attitude but about the separation from God it causes.
I pray for the ability to hold that view in my mind so I can walk with the constant awareness that I am either moving myself towards God or away from God with each step.
Sin is missing the mark. He made me for something good and I am missing out on it.
I pray for a heart that wants closeness with the Lord above all else, a heart that can trust His purpose for good in my life even when I can’t see it, and a heart that beats with obedient devotion.
